Land of Nod Inspired Kids Artwork

I saw some adorable wall decor in the Land of Nod catalog a few weeks ago. I wanted to fill a small space in the nursery, and decided to make my own version inspired by the $25 a piece framed wall decor from Land of Nod.


I was at first going to purchase square frames, but decided in the end that it was not cost effective. The frames that the LON has are 10 X 10, and I ended up purchasing 6 X 6 canvases. The reason I chose that size was that I found the some scrapbook paper I wanted to use in that dimension.



I purchased the canvases through a seller on Amazon. The only reason I did this was because I knew I could get them easier this way. I had no idea if there would be a Michaels trip in my near future and I did not want to wait.  I simply mod podged the scrapbook paper to the canvas. Then I cut out some animal shapes I had purchased for my Silhouette Cameo machine. The entire project took about twenty minutes of work and some drying time in between.

Here are the inspiration photos from Land of Nod's site.


I am very happy with how they turned out. It cost approximately $8 dollars for me to make four of them. Instead of the $100 it would have cost to buy four of these from Land of Nod.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

  7. Great minds think alike as we both had easy kid's wall art on our minds today!! I am laughing about your Amazon comment because I find myself doing the same thing. We have an Ulta done the street from us and I still found it more convenient to order my makeup online instead of trying to find a moment I could get out sans the baby or when he was content and happy! These are precious and I love the mix of patterned paper that you used!

  13. I put mod podge on the canvas and then put over top of the scrapbook paper to seal it. The animal shapes are actually adhesive vinyl so it went on like a sticker. :) Thanks for stopping by.
